Apple's iPhone 12 could have fresh yet familiar look

Apple's upcoming iPhone 12 could surprise customers with a fresh yet familiar look.

With the tech giant set to launch its new device in 2020, there has

been a lot of speculation and reports about the next handset's design and features, including reduced screen size, time-of-flight camera and 5G support

PhoneArena has consolidated the suggestions into renders showing a possible concept for the iPhone 12, including flat edges and sharper lines more reminiscent of the iPhone 4 and 5 with the rounded corners possibly being abandoned.

After the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max models saw a move to the three-camera array, the potential addition of the time-of-flight camera would not only help boost AR mapping, but also provide the opportunity for portrait mode in video.

The speculation comes after it was suggested the tech giant's 2020 devices could feature a metal frame design in a similar way to the one used for the iPhone 4 in 2010.

According to Ming-Chi Kuo, the handsets' "metal frame surface will be changed to a similar design to the iPhone 4, replacing the current surface design".

The 2010 models had a more square-edged design than their successors, with the 2018 iPad Pro seeing Apple give this design another spin.

However, Kuo's research note suggests the phone - which should support 5G - would still use glass with a slight curve on the front and rear.
